Does Thunar support a Media/Video/Audio tab in a file's properties?

Using Xfce and Thunar.

If I right-click a .jpg image and click Properties, there is an "Image" tab that displays metadata of the image, such as its resolution.

But I don't see a Video or Audio tab if I view a video or audio file's properties. I remember Ubuntu had this, for example, here. Is that because of Nautilus (which I don't have currently)? Or is there a way to add these tabs in?

Dunno what exactly you need, but pacman -Ss thunar lists few plugins of which some appear to be related to media files.

Thunar probably doesn't have such a feature then.

thunar-media-tags-plugin definitely adds an "Audio" tab.
Have you restarted thunar after the installation?

I definatly get Audio tab:

but alas I am not seeing a Video tab, now I am going through my collection to work out which formats provide the correct mime type which will tell thunar to display it!!


ROG Strix (GD30CI) - Intel Core i5-7400 CPU - 32Gb 2400Mhz - GTX1070 8GB - AwesomeWM (occasionally XFCE, i3)

If everything in life was easy, we would learn nothing!

The following custom action works for me in thunar:

ffmpeg -i %f  2>&1 | grep -e Stream -e Duration -e Input | zenity --width=480 --height=240 --text-info --title %n

with appearance conditions: Audio and Video files

requires ffmpeg and zenity
